Six Harmonies

The Right Path of Yiquan
By Wang Xiang Zhai


The six harmonies can be dived into internal and external; the harmony of the heart and the mind, the harmony of the mind and qi, and the harmony of the qi and the strength are the three internal harmonies; the harmony of the hands and the feet, the harmony of the elbows and the knees, and the harmony of the shoulders and the hips are the external harmonies. Also, the harmony of the muscles and the bones, the harmony of the teeth and the flesh, and the harmony of the lungs and the kidneys, are the internal harmonies, while the harmony of the head and the hands, the harmony of the hands and the torso, and the harmony of the torso and the feet are the external harmonies. Summed up, spirit in harmony, strength in harmony, the moving line of the body in movement or posture being opposed to these harmonies, this is called harmony. Terrible indeed, the six harmonies harm people. Students, be careful! be careful!
